A lumbar fusion may be recommended for patients who experience spine conditions with either radiculopathy (irritation of the nerve root) or instability (where the spine is moving more than it should causing back pain, muscle spasms, and radiculopathy).
At Cumberland Neurosurgery and Spine Center, our board-certified neurosurgeon performs traditional and minimally invasive surgery at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge to treat injuries and disease of the brain, spine and nervous system.
